Garak and Bashir are waiting in line in the mess hall when suddenly Bashir notices Garak is not feeling well. He seems to be having some kind of a seizure but refuses treatment. Bashir remains concerned, especially after he shows some weird behavior. He sees Garak doing a business transaction with Quark, getting himself drunk in the bar and finally collapsing. An examination shows he has an implant in his head. Garak has no other option than to tell the truth. He got secret information and to avoid giving it away the implant releases the pleasure hormone during interrogations. But to avoid depression he has kept the implant on for more than a year. It is now giving out and slowly killing him. While Bashir searches for a cure, Garak tells him contradicting stories about his past. Written by
